Giants Officially Finalize Coaching Staff

The New York Giants today officially announced the final two hirings for their 2012 coaching staff.

Matt Rhule, formerly of Temple University, will be the Giants' assistant offensive line coach, while Lunda Wells has left LSU to become the team's offensive assistant.

Rhule replaces Jack Bicknell, Jr., who left the Giants soon after they won Super Bowl XLVI to become the Kansas City Chiefs' offensive line coach. Wells' arrival is the last move in a chain of events that saw quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan leave to become the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' offensive coordinator, Sean Ryan shift from wide receivers to quarterbacks coach and Kevin M. Gilbride being promoted to wide receivers coach from offensive assistant.

Rhule, a former player at Penn State, coached at the collegiate level for 14 seasons, including the last six at Temple, where last year he was the co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach.

Wells has been on the LSU staff since 2008, when he started as a volunteer. More recently, he was responsible for preparing breakdowns of tape and helping with special teams preparations. The Tigers' special teams coach is Thomas McGaughey, who was an assistant with the Giants from 2007-10.
